"Navigating the complexities of the educational landscape is a challenge, at best. Translating the reality emanating from this complexity into strategic and tactical action designed to build collective capacity and improve student performance is even more challenging.
Johnston and Williamson have created a practical and reader-friendly 'travel guide' that steers the reader through obstacles and opportunities confronting school leaders. Your route to success is enhanced by the authors' experience and informed perspective."
--Richard A. Flanary, Deputy Executive for Programs & Services, National Association of Secondary School Principals (NASSP)
"Johnston and Williamson have taken a challenging topic for school officials-lack of funding-and provided practical strategies for school leaders and educators. The Four Rs for leading schools-Reduce, Refine, Restructure, and Regenerate-offer real school examples and scenarios to respond to the changes in the education landscape. School leaders faced with similar problems will find this book a valuable resource."
--William D. Waidelich, EdD, CAE, Executive Director, Association for Middle Level Education
